We’re proud to offer the latest and safest in lithium battery technology from the Western Australian company Powerplus, rack mountable & compact lithium battery system. Paired with the time proven Victron Inverter Charger hardware, this package brings the best modern renewable energy technologies together for a fully expandable Off Grid solar power solution.

Peace of mind is a very important facet of living self sufficiently or off grid. The Victron hardware has time proven reliability & is covered by an outstanding 5 year replacement or repair warranty. The Powerplus Lithium batteries system features an outstanding 10 warranty. They are constructed of the safest and best performing lithium battery technology for solar off grid power systems ? Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (otherwise known as LiFePO4 or LFP).


Powerplus batteries (Australian Made Lithium)

Australian designed and engineered, the Powerplus Lithium batteries are very impressive in all aspects featuring a 10,000 cycle life rating, a much smaller footprint and excellent low temperature performance. A battery bank can now fit in almost one third the footprint of previous off grid lithium options, with aesthetics a world forward from a lead-acid type battery bank.

Powerplus batteries have been used in industrial applications for a long time with a strong mining alliance, they have a fantastic in-field record for reliability and performance in harsh environments. Powerplus are also used in the Australian services.

Main benefits of the PowerPlus Energy Batteries:

  • Australia made, designed and engineered
  • No Control/Communication cables required
  • 96-98% Charge efficiency
  • 10,000 Cycles rated in off grid solar
  • Flexible installation options( almost unlimited batteries can be added in parallel at ANY time in the lifespan of the system)
  • 1/3 of the weight and size of lead acid batteries
  • 24 and 48V units available
  • 100% Depth of Discharge
  • 10 Year warranty

Based on the rated performance and upfront cost, the Powerplus Batteries deliver an exceptional cost of ownership. The 10,000 cycle based warranty (24,000kWh per battery module in 10 years) dictates a max of around 13.5 cents per kWh, and typical real word usage scenarios can far exceed the guaranteed minimums.

Peace of mind is a very important facet of living self sufficiently or off grid. The Victron hardware has time proven reliability & is covered by an outstanding 5 year replacement or repair warranty. The Powerplus Lithium batteries system features an outstanding 10 year or 10,000 cycle warranty! They are constructed of the safest and best performing lithium battery technology for solar off grid power systems ? Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (otherwise known as LiFePO4 or LFP).

Package includes:

  • Victron MultiPlus 5KVA or Quattro 8kVA, 10kVA or 15kVA Inverter Charger (select from drop-down menu above)
  • Powerplus lithium Battery bank and Cabinet (select capacity from drop-down menu above)
  • A Grade PV Solar Panel array using CEC approved 330W Solar Panels (select array size from drop-down menu above)
  • Victron MPPT SmartSolar?charge controller to suit selected solar array
  • Victron Colour Control GX System Monitor with Online Access
  • Solar Panel racking to suit Tin roof (Tile & Tilt upgrades available)
  • Cables, fuses, isolators, etc to suit the system
  • 20m cable runs to the solar array and 2m cable distance to the battery bank as standard
  • Safety Sticker Kit
  • Connection guides
  • Pre-wired and configured system board – see photos (this makes a faster and simpler install onsite)

The system can be expanded at any time in the following ways

  • Over 100kWh battery storage ? using 3kWh modules & cabinets as required
  • Up to 6x Inverter Chargers for up to 30kVA rated output power ? set single phase or 3 phase
  • Within sensibility, basically an unlimited amount of solar power can be installed, adding more MPPT controllers as required.

Detailed system information such as solar power, usage history & battery status is displayed on the intuitive Colour Control GX panel. When connected to your home network all this live information can be viewed on your smart phone or a PC, and if you have the internet ? view your system from anywhere in the world using Victron?s free Remote Management portal (called the VRM portal). See the Colour Control GX brochure on the downloads tab for more information.

Create a Grid-Hybrid?system, where your Solar energy is used & stored as first priority**. Power will be supplied primarily from the solar panels?& battery bank. If required, the grid can help power loads through the inverter automatically. This design principle uses your solar & stored energy first before using the mains grid power. If your batteries are full, and there is more solar power than your loads need, the extra power can be exported back to the grid for feed-in tariffs.

Cabinet Options

For systems ordered with 3 batteries or less, as standard the white IP66 Cabinet is supplied, as per 3rd photo, for 4 or more battery systems the larger server rack style cabinet is supplied- see first photo. Do let us know if you have any requirements for cabinet sizing, as we can help to customise a cabinet to suit.

System Performance

Solar array ? depending on location, the annual daily?average in Australia is?4 to 5 hours equivalent of?full?power from the?array per day (where a 1kW array would give between 4 ? 5kWh per day?if demanded) with more in summer and less in winter. A large solar PV array?design principle reduces the amount of time the batteries will be low on charge, which?maximises their life expectancy & provides you with far more reliable power. Average daily input figures:

12x 270w?= 12.9kWh per day?| 18x 270w = 19.4kWh?per day | 24x 270w = 25.9kWh?per day | 30x 270w = 32.4kWh per day

** If you wish to make a grid connected solar power system with or without grid feeding / export of solar power, we can change to the new Victron ?MultiPlus-II? 3-5kVA inverter chargers which are designed for this purpose (or multiple inverters for more power). The MultiPlus or Quattro inverter chargers available on this listing are not suitable for mains connection of grid feeding / export of solar power. Please contact us if you wish to change the system in any way, we are happy to design systems according to customer requirements.
